Canadian Speckle Park

Canadian Speckle Park

The Canadian Speckle Park is a breed of cattle native to the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. It is one of only a few beef cattle breeds developed in Canada from three British breeds; The Teeswater Shorthorn, Aberdeen Angus and a British white. The latter half of the breed's name derives from the characteristic black, white and grey spots and patches of colour that it is known for.

The Canadian Speckle Park is one of the newest cattle breeds, having been officially recognized by the Canadian government in 2006.
